The players Kevin Trapp, Almamy Toure, Makoto Hasebe, Evan NDicka, Aurélio Buta, Daichi Kamada, Djibril Sow, Christopher Lenz, Jesper Lindstrm, Mario Götze, and Randal Kolo Muani are likely to play in a 3-4-2-1 formation for Eintracht in this match.

With Robin Zentner, Andreas Hanche-Olsen, Stefan Bell, Edimilson Fernandes, Danny da Costa, Aymen Barkok, Anton Stach, Aaron Martin, Jae-Sung Lee, Karim Onisiwo, and Ludovic Ajorque as their starters, we lean toward believing that Mainz will most likely use a 3-4-2-1 system.
